President Barack Obama continues to avoid the White House press corps, as if they were the plague, but that won’t stop him from doing face-to-face exclusive interviews with trendy women’s fashion magazines.
Politico reports that, “editor-in-chief Cindi Leive flew to Portland, Ore., last month to sit down with the president for an interview that will appear in the magazine’s November issue. It is not the first time Obama has sat down with Glamour – he did so in 2008, along with John McCain – but it is his first time as a sitting president.”
Washington editor Linda Kramer Jenning, said they pitched Obama on a big audience. She added, “there’s a lot of attention being paid to young women voters. That’s the calling card that opens the door.”
According to Politico, “Jenning said Leive asked the president about women’s health care, among other topics.”
